Drone Collisions: Myths and Reality
9:30 AM - 10:30 AM
Location: Drone Cage at Aviation Gateway Park
Presenter: Bill English
With thousands of unmanned aircraft (drones) now part of the airspace, the risk of midair collision is a major discussion. This presentation reviews NTSB case studies and how they actually turned out: confirmed as a collision, plausible that a drone could have been involved, or busted as something else altogether. Mr. English, who’s been with the NTSB for 20 years, is an Investigator-in-Charge in the Major Investigations Division of the Office of Aviation Safety and serves as the NTSB’s unmanned aircraft program lead.
